Edinburgh’s Telford College has been recognised for its student-centred approach to international recruitment with a highly prestigious Further Education award.

Telford is the first college in Scotland to be awarded the International Charter from the Association of Colleges (AoC), after passing an in-depth assessment of its international activity. The AoC awards the International Charter to colleges which are meeting their commitment to high standards in four key areas covering international strategy, planning, support for learners and an ethical and inclusive approach.

Miles Dibsdall OBE, principal of Edinburgh Telford College, said: “We are proud to have been the first college in Scotland to be recognised with this widely acclaimed honour.

“Achieving the International Charter is real testament to the staff at the college as well as to the students who continue to excel in their studies.

“Our philosophy is carried by all at the college and I believe this is what has set us apart.”
